Turn your garden into your extra room

With the summer here we are all looking for ways to enjoy the sunshine as best we can. The very best way to do this is by turning your garden into a sanctuary where you can relax with a drink at the end of the day or have friends and family round at the weekend. With a creative streak and a little money you can easily turn you garden into a place to chill. There is nothing more enjoyable than spending a warm summers evening sitting in a garden with a drink simply relaxing.

We all want a place to chill out after a long day at work. With summers in the UK sometimes short it is always worth taking every advantage of the sunny days when we get them. The first and clearly the most important thing about setting up a garden is that you can use as an extra room is that you have a garden. You do not even need a large garden. It can still be achieved with as little as 15 square feet. There are a variety of things you can do that will turn this small area into an area that will be used to give yourselves the lifestyle you really want.

To turn your garden into your extra room you need a surprisingly few items. These items will not cost a fortune so there really is no excuse for not setting it up and benefitting from it. Firstly you will need to remove all weeds and unwanted bushes. It is often worth pruning trees but they can be used to help give you some shade during the heat of the day. It is best to add shrubs and to create a nice landscaped effect even in the smallest gardens.

It is then worth creating the central attraction. In this case it will most probably be a table with chairs and if you are sensible will be a large umbrella to fit into the table. This will protect you from the sun not to mention the birds. This creates a central attraction that will clearly show the reason for the garden and show people why you would want to go out there. The table and chairs can be purchased for a surprisingly small amount. This is where patient’s pays off waiting for the sales you can get a quality table and chairs for up to 40% off making it a bargain.

If you use the same ideas for the plants and decking you have in your garden you can create a peaceful chilling zone for next to nothing giving you a place to relax every night of the summer. It will give you a chance to chill out and relax in a stress free environment while getting some sun which is well known to help our mental well being. All in all turning your garden into a place to relax is one of the best things you can do for your health. When you do you will wish you had done it years ago.
